I owe you one…

I feel like I owe ya´ll an update – since it HAVE been things going on around here (as in East of Havanah, Cuba).

In two days – 2 days – I´ve got my midterm exam in ex.phil (history of philosophy) and ex.fac (science of philosophy). Today – 2day – a great carneval begun in the capital, but because of my lagging behind with the reading and all, I get no part of the fun. Speaking of fun, three or five of the co-students that participate in these courses (with me) actually met Fidel Castro the other day at a John Lennon memorialconcert. And where was I? You guessed it; at home getting drunk. Well, you can´t have it all…

Since the students over here have been complaining alot about the whole setup of where we´re staying, the way we´re taught Spanish etc. the leader of Gateway College, mr. Petter Sørum, took the first plane to Cuba to settle down the riots. As a consequence, the students which weren´t satisfied with where and how we are living, are allowed to move from campus and into the city (or wherever). This means that the number of students around have been halved, and right now it´s really quiet around here. It´s actually quite good, considering the fact that I´ve got houndreds of pages to read till Monday´s big test, but still.. I do like having some life around me.

Wether I will move or not is still not a question, as I try to focus at the exams.

Pauly, from The Tao of Pauly, just reported that Señor has become a father to a little fellow named Jodd (or something similar). Congrats!

In addition, my Cuban visum (or visa) runs out the 20th of December, giving me 9 days of exploring the island if I want to. I haven´t decided yet, but I think I´d be able to pull it through from an economical point of view. In addition to this addition, a couple of friends of mine are probably going to Jamaica after the final exams, and I´m wondering wether this could be interesting too. After all, when I´ve first flew the couple thousands of miles across the deep, blue sea, I should exploit my travellingchances…

I´m going partially insane at the moment, because the roommate with the stereo managed to spill beer inside the CD-reader thingie, so the only music we have is brought to us by MTV Latino America which isn´t necessarily a good thing. Well, I think it´s time to return to the reading and all, even though what I really like is to jump into the shower (which actually can be very fun, because it gives you electric shocks from time to time:), have a beer and go straight to Havana to see the carneval. If my luck´s as good as usual, I´ll probably miss Castro there too… Damn…

Oh, and I almost forgot: don´t forget to vote on your favourite female!
